Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has assured to provide atleast 3 acres of land for the benefit of people from Northern Karnataka settled in Bengaluru.

The delegation led by President of the Federation Shivakumar Meti presented the charter of demands to the Chief Minister at his home office ‘Krishna’.
“Soon land would be granted for construction of a building for the benefit of people from Northern Karnataka.
